Presence Villa Franciscan,a skilled nursing facility located at 210 N. Springfield Ave. in Joliet owned by Ascension Living, has named by U.S. News and World Report as one of “America’s Best Short-Stay Rehabilitation Centers."
U.S. News and World Report identified the Best Nursing Homes for 2018-19 after evaluating more than 15,000 homes nationwide, in every state and nearly 100 major metropolitan areas.
For the 2018-19 ratings, U.S. News debuted a new Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating. This rating was created to help patients who stay fewer than 100 days have a better understanding of the quality of care provided by skilled nursing facilities (or nursing homes) to short-stay patients requiring rigorous rehabilitation or skilled nursing care after a hospital stay and before they return home after a surgery, stroke, accident or illness.
The Short-Stay Rehabilitation rating was determined by nine measures of facility quality, counting three measures of short-stay outcomes – hospital readmissions, emergency room visits and successful discharges – as well as data on staffing of registered nurses and physical therapists, the number of verified grievances per patient, and other metrics.
Presence Villa Franciscan offers a range of care, services and support options including short-term rehabilitation as well as intermediate, memory, respite and skilled nursing care. The Joint Commission accredited center is owned and operated by Ascension Living.
